Kids OT has been developed by Rosy Butcher, who is a qualified Paediatric Occupational Therapist, registered with the Occupational Therapy Board of New Zealand. She has over thirty years’ work experience as an Occupational Therapist, specialising in Paediatrics for the past fourteen years. Her post-graduate training in Sensory Integration has proven to be an integral focus of her service delivery.
Rosy has worked within a variety of settings including Te Whanau Kotahi (Child Development Team) for 5 years and then moving into Private Practice with varying organisational contracts including Special and Mainstream schools, ACC, Ministry of Education- High and Complex Needs Team/ Wraparound service, Community Living Trust. In 2015 Rosy was employed by CCS Disability Action as a Community Support Coordinator where she recognised the need for families to have more options for interventions for their children. This led her to start Kids OT in May 2016.
